For the residents that live inside the Al-Jourah District of Deir Ezzor City, day-to-day life was nothing short of inhuman due to the six month long siege that was imposed by the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) in the provincial capital’s northern sector.

On Wednesday morning, the Syrian Arab Army’s 104th Airborne Brigade of the Republican Guard – in coordination with the 137th Artillery Brigade of the 17th Reserve Division and the National Defense Forces (NDF) – finally lifted the six month long siege of the Al-Jourah District after they broke through ISIS’ frontline defenses at the Al-Qusour District.

With the siege lifted on Wednesday morning, the Syrian Armed Forces began to bring in humanitarian aid for the 20,000 residents of the Al-Jourah District, providing them food, medical supplies, and large cases of water in order to bear the scorching temperatures inside the provincial capital.

In addition to their success at the Al-Jourah District, the Syrian Armed Forces cleared the Al-Muri’iyah Farms after intense clashes with the terrorist group inside this village that borders the Deir Ezzor Military Airport to the east.

Firefights between the Syrian Armed Forces and ISIS were also reported inside the Al-Rashidiyah, Al-Hamidiyah, Al-Jubeileh, Old Airport, Al-Kanamat, Sheikh Yassine, and Al-Husseiniyeh Districts of Deir Ezzor City on Thursday.

Inside Al-Jafra, the Syrian Armed Forces targeted an ISIS hideout near the Jafra-Hatla axis, resulting in the death of 13 enemy combatants and the destruction of an armored vehicle that was mounted with a doshka.

This is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
